Endurance

Information

Time: 7:00pm

Tickets: Pay What You Can (suggested price £16)

Running Time: 1 hr 30 mins

Age Guidance: 14+

This event takes place in person in our Members Bar.

Jenni is not an athlete. Jenni has not done enough training. Jenni wants to perform a feat of endurance, live and in real time. She really wants to be able to run up hills and mountains.

Exploring colonial legacies through the prism of the Bolivian/Aymaran warrior Bartolina Sisa and modern day women who are out-performing men at ultra marathon running, Jenni wants to know how we carry on when things get really hard?

Endurance looks at how we endure, why we endure, and how women can make their innate propensity for endurance work in their favour to tip the balance of power.
